i’ve been to memphis lyrics – lyle lovett

the sun comes up
in a coffee cup
waitress please i’ve had enough

lord i can’t believe what i see
how could you be alone
when you could sit right here beside me girl
and make yourself at home

i’ve been to memphis
and muscle shoals
and i love a woman
what i don’t know

when the sun goes down
in another town
bartender please another round

lord i can’t believe what i see
how could you be alone
when you could sit right here beside me girl
and make yourself at home

i’ve been to houston
and san antonio
and i love a woman
what i don’t know

sherry she had big ones
sally had some too
but allison had little ones
what hate to go to school

and i make my bed
where i lay my head
and i wish i heard what she just said

lord i can’t believe what i see
how could you be alone
when you could sit right here beside me girl
and make yourself at home

i’ve been to la
and el paso
and i love a woman
what i don’t know

sherry she had big ones
sally had some too
but allison had little ones
what hate to go to school

and i make my bed
where i lay my head
and i wish i heard what she just said

lord i can’t believe what i see
how could you be alone
when you could sit right here beside me girl
and make yourself at home

i’ve been to…
and where i go
i love a woman
what i don’t know
